Pray for Christian Orphans Abducted After Sharing the Gospel

[378] prayers in [21] nations have been posted for Abducted Orphans.

Several orphans from the Pa’O ethnic group were abducted by angry Buddhists in February 2017 after they distributed gospel tracts during a large Buddhist festival. The orphans, who live under the care of a Christian worker, had distributed gospel tracts in 18 Pa’O villages before being confronted by Buddhist monks at the festival. When the monks called for their arrest and attempted to shave their heads, the youth fled to their home with the Christian worker. But the monks sent villagers and Pa’O rebel army officers after the orphans, and four of them were taken. One managed to escape and return to his native village, while the other three were detained and had their heads shaved. After 10 days, another of the orphans was able to escape and return home. The two remaining boys are thought to be detained in a Buddhist monastery. Pray that the orphans will continue to grow in faith and that their evangelistic efforts will bear fruit and lead others to Christ. Also pray for the Christian worker as he cares for additional orphans and raises them as followers of Jesus.

  • Lord, we are in a fierce battle for souls, and for the glory of your name. We know that these orphan children are not orphans, for they are Your kids, and You are their Father. We are all adopted into Your family, who trust in Christ as Savior. Our own family has many adopted children, and we love them so. But, you love them more. Please aid them.

  • Father God,
    Jesus praised the faith of children in the Bible and these precious ones were answering Jesus' call. Only you can protect them and their faith. If you chose to leave those in the monastery, use it to be the seed of the gospel that shows the buddist faith to be the false faith that it is amongst the monks there.
    In Jesus Name

  • Father let these believers rejoice and be glad, for their reward in heaven is great; for in the same way
    the prophets were persecuted who were before them. Let them rejoice in their sufferings for your
    sake, as in their flesh they do their share on behalf of Christ's body, which is the church, in filling up
    what is lacking in Christ's afflictions.
